Our History

In September of 1986 First New Testament Church, a non-denominational, full-gospel Church, held its first meeting with a membership of 15 people. Called by the Lord, Pastor Lee Shipp has faithfully led the church since its founding. It has grown steadily and substantially over the past years. In October of 1994, we purchased four acres and built our first facility. In the summer of 1996, we acquired two more acres of land adjacent to our first facility, enabling us to build our current sanctuary in the summer of 2006.


In August of 1995, we went on our first foreign missions trip to Mexico. We built our first church in Mexico in May of 1996. Each year our efforts in the area of missions have increased both foreign and domestic. We plan multiple mission trips per year. We have now been to various places within the United States. On the foreign soil, we have been to Southern and Northern Ireland, Wales, Scotland, England, Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic, Russia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Croatia, , Haiti, Dominican Republic, Peru ,Chile, Panama, Mexico, Honduras, Philippines, Myanmar (Burma), Fiji, Thailand, South Africa, Egypt, India, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia. We work hard in various areas while on these mission trips: open air preaching, door-to-door evangelism, church building, construction, and medical missions to name a few. Pastor Shipp has also been sought after for teaching leadership and pastor’s conferences and revivals throughout these areas.


In September of 2016 First New Testament Church celebrated its 30th anniversary. We look forward to the future with great expectations of what God will do through this ministry.
